Ultra-Low Budget ‘Friends Effing Friends’ Begins Production in L.A. (EXCLUSIVE)

Tyler Dawson (“Bellflower”), Graham Skipper, Christina Gooding, Vanessa DuBasso and Jillian Leigh are starring in ultra-low budget comedy “Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends.”

Caliber Media and Glydascope are producing the project. Quincy Rose is directing the film about well-educated young adults trying to make their way through the craziness of dating in Los Angeles.

Shooting began Wednesday and will last about three weeks in Los Angeles, where big-budget films have largely vanished due to rich incentives from other states and nations. State legislators have recently introduced a bill to improve the state’s production tax credit program, and FilmL.A. president Paul Audley has noted repeatedly that these days, much of the feature film shooting in Los Angeles has been of low-budget entries such as “Friends Effing Friends.”

“Shooting in L.A. was a mixture of several things,” producer Dallas Sonnier told Variety. “The story is all about how hard it is to date and find real love in Los Angeles — it’s easy to just get laid, but to make a commitment is much harder and ulitmately more fulfilling. Also, it is much cheaper to shoot an ultra-low-budget indie feature in L.A. these days because you save on travel and crew costs. And finally, we really just wanted to be able to sleep in our own beds at night!”

Rose is the son of Mickey Rose, who co-wrote Woody Allen’s early features, including “Take the Money and Run” and “Bananas.”

Skipper is repped by Artist International Management. Gooding is repped by Caliber Media and Trisko Talent. DuBasso is repped by Ideal Talent. Leigh is repped by Luber Roklin and Jeremy Tenser.
